Riverbend Malt House’s Rye Malt Travels the Nation with New Belgium Hop Kitchen Collaboration

Asheville, NC

The New Belgium Hop Kitchen series will feature Riverbend’s Carolina Rye malt

The Spring 2014 release from New Belgium Brewing’s Hop Kitchen series will be a Rye IPA using rye grown in North Carolina and malted by Riverbend Malt House in Asheville.

This is the first time that a beer made with North Carolina craft malt will be given this degree of national distribution. The forthcoming collaboration will feature a variety of rye that’s been grown in North Carolina since the Civil War.

"Having been grown by farmers in North Carolina for over 200 hundred years and hand crafted utilizing traditional floor malting techniques, the Carolina Rye malt embodies the terroir of the southeast,” said Riverbend co-founder Brian Simpson. “Riverbend Malt House is excited that New Belgium will bring this taste of the South to so many new palates."

New Belgium and Riverbend began working together in May, with the development of a special beer exclusively for Asheville Beer Week – a Rye Saison using Riverbend’s Carolina Rye malt. Brewers were so pleased with the beer that they decided to use the Carolina Rye in their series of quarterly releases called Hop Kitchen.

“I heard of these guys when a few of us came down during Asheville Beer Week last year,” said New Belgium brewer, Matty Gilliland. “We set up a visit to their facility and were pretty blown away by the operation. They were doing 1,000 lb. batches by hand. The quality of their craft and their unbelievable work ethic left an indelible impression on us.”

Since announcing plans to open a second brewery in Asheville, New Belgium has been an active participant in their new community, investing in bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure and partnering with more than 10 regional non-profits, and colleagues in the brewing industry. This partnership with Riverbend is just one example.

The Hop Kitchen Rye IPA will be released to select markets in March 2014.

Lake of Bays Brewing Company Introduces Signature Series Club

Baysville, ON

Ontario craft beer and hockey memorabilia collectors have something new and innovative to celebrate with the launch of the Signature Series Club, a brand new lineup of tribute beers and collectibles, available exclusively online for an introductory special of $50.

Collectors who join the Signature Series Club will receive four Signature Series limited-edition beers -- one new release approximately every three months, in exclusive hand-numbered bottles with matching numbered printer's proofs, as well as a VIP tour of the brewery, located in Baysville, Ontario near Algonquin Park.

Each release is a new premium quality artisan-brewed beer paying tribute to a different hockey legend. "These are very special beers, paying tribute to some of the greatest hockey players of all time," said NHL Alumni Association executive director Mark Napier. "It’s wonderful to see them being immortalized in this way.”
